Etymology 1[edit]

Borrowed from Japanese (mino).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

mino (plural mino)

  1. (historical) A traditional Japanese raincoat made from straw.

Etymology 2[edit]

Presumably originally a hypercorrection of myna under the assumption that it had been subjected to the reduction of unstressed final /əʊ///oʊ/ common in nonstandard English varieties (compare fella, winda; in thorough and (-)borough such reduction is standard as these words are often unstressed).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

mino (plural minos)

  1. Archaic form of myna (type of bird).
    • 1877, C. W. Gedney, Foreign cage birds, volume 2, page 195:
      He is a native of East India and its adjacent islands, but the high estimation in which the Mino is held amongst the natives, and the ready sale which promising specimens realise (the equivalent of £2 being often paid in India) render it difficult to obtain a really good bird in England except at an extravagant price.
